The last of the muses from the Dark sword kickstarter.The fox is also from the same kickstarter. Happy with dress and the scene. Not so happy with the face, not enough contrast around the eyes I think.
Pete the Pirate has a really bad day. First his ship ran into a reef and is taking on water, then his crew abandoned him, taking the loot with them. Only his faithful pet monkey Pepe remained. And now even the rum is all gone.
The miniature is the drunken pirate from Reaper. The base is custom made.
My partner for the 2015 summer exchange on the Reaper forum was Flamehawke. She said she plays mostly mages so I choose Nonalla for her. She is holding a book, and I like books
The background diorama is scratch build from plastic card with some chests from my bits-box. I made the base for the mini detachable, so that it can be used in a game. The base is magnetic.Flamehawke gave me some hints so I kept the colors light for the mini. Added a circle of Nordic runes and a dragon familiar. The runes spell Flamehawke (but maybe I forgot the last ‘e’ )
This grew into a bigger project than I planned. It all started with Jolie. Then I searched for more miniatures for a library and I found some more then expected, so I needed a bigger diorama. Then came the idea to make a large globe as a centerpiece.It was a lot of work to make all the details. There are over 300 books in the diorama. It was also a lot of fun to do.
The miniatures in the diorama are Ailyn Ghonstasavos, Hellknight Captain, Jolie Female Scribe, Balto Burrowell, Cleric of Mammon from Reaper Miniatures , the Discworld Librarian from MicroArtStudio. Grand Master Pycelle and the Scribe of Westeros from Dark sword.
I am happy how it turned out, for me it has the right level of detail for busy day at the library.
Muse Thalia from Dark Sword miniatures. This muse gives a musician some inspiration. For this muse I wanted to try something different.
I used an old style nib pen and glued a small copper rod under the nib. Painted black it is almost invisible and the pen looks like it is writing on it’s own. The music notes are paper on copper wires for the lines.
It was a bit of a puzzle to figure how to get the effect I wanted, but in the end it came how I wanted.
